    Good news.

    Things are stabilizing. Areas are still flooded but the rain is no longer as bad as it was and the water is receding by a lot now. It's business as usual from monday provided things don't get worse. Thanks for the well wishes.

    [13:54:15] <rzyvbh> Alright, so, Coral. Coral is known primarily for military, exploration, and merchant expedition. They also hold the line against western fae.
    [13:54:37] <rzyvbh> Feel free to make up excuse why your character is on Coral. ...in fact, I should put it on thread

    Alternatively, I can make your chars specifically called by one of the power player on Corral for one reason or another, if that's your wish.

    For me? Well, the Fae caused a....incident which resulted in a Tyrant Lizard running amuck and this is the perfect opportunity for my Char's to fulfil his side of the bargain. That and to make some cash off the bounty being offered to kill it.

    Oh... I'm thinking the ship she Exalted on was bringing iron weapons to sell in Corral.

    Mine's running West, likely from the City of Steel Lotus so he might as well end up in Corral because he hitched in a merchant ship.

    PS: My sheet's done. It's back on page 8.

    Thoughts, Nekraa? If neither of our characters have a specific reason to be there, they could just... well, be travelling through.

    Backstory looks more Night than Eclipse to me. Albeit the conman angle than the assassin.

    Na, it sounds like a Eclipse, just more Bureaucratic than Diplomatic.

    Though if I made an Eclipse, I would go for using book keeping to smuggle notjews away from notNazis.

    He used Socialize as his Supernal, instead of Breaucracy.

    That true but he did fast talk that dragonblooded away though.

    It was more presence than Socialize as it was not a formal setting but it still somewhat works out.

    Luckily for you it is still in caste ability. but honestly? Just keep it Socialize or switch to bureaucracy if you want to rebuild your the East India Family Company.

    Secondary concern. They're still in debt anyway. :V
    If there's anything he'd do, it'd be a hostile takeover of businesses. :V

    Noted. but ya, Socialize is useful in a Formal Setting and every where else Presence is used, but the charms are still versatile. We are going to be doing a LOT of travelling so we will probably be meeting a lot of Village/Town/City chiefs as well a lot of spirits i'll be introducing via Lore facts. So socialize will come in handy there too.

    And the thing about cons and scams is that they're all planned so Socialize apply to them.

    Well it depends on what part of the con you are talking about. If you are trying to convince them through talk on the road/market etc or similar places, then Presence. Through dance/song/etc then performance. If you are approaching a king in his court with his permission by appointment or a formal situation with lots of people then Socialize applies. Generally Contract or written method depends on the ST ruling, usually Linguistics.

    Yeah, EB doesn't have any specific destination so she mostly drifts around.

    What about you Biigoh ? How did you end up in Corral? Any chance your char would be after the bounty?

    Thanks. It really helps me with my crafting xp. That and gives me a chance to talk you into going after the Tyrant Lizard bounty.
